Whether is it, chilli red, bright red, dark red, maroon or wine red, basically all shades of red makes the cut this season except pinkish red!

The colour red is the representation of passion and intensity. And well, it’s the colour that will suit many skin types whether you are dark, tanned or fair.

Most importantly, it will bring you the radiance on your face and will be so suitable for any occasion especially red carpets, important dates and dinners!

She’s always been carrying this sweet and girly look with the girly vibe in her and usually her lip colours were pink or neutral shades like nudes. This time, you could really see her wearing red on her lips because RED is the hottest lip color this season!

A Story of A Bullied Victim in School…

Have you suffer from peer pressure in your high school or secondary school day?

Have you been a victim in being bully and jeered?

Have you been a class outcast?

Well, let me tell you a story, there’s this innocent-looking girl who was shy and introvert and a sms reply to this guy changed the fate of her entire 4 years in secondary school. 

So, it all started out when she replied this guy who said that he fancied her and wanted to go out with her and being such an innocent girl, she said yes because she told it was just a joke and that she was not really going to go out with him.

However, things got nasty the next day she went to school, the moment she stepped into the class, the whole class started pointing fingers at her, laughing, joking and jeering at her. She was not even sure what was happening until one of her best friends stepped out to tell her the story. 

Finally, she realized that the guy was just playing a prank on her and she was too foolish and silly to have replied him with a “yes”. Of course, deep down, she wanted to voiced out that she was joking too but she eventually figured out that there was no way anyone would listen to her except for her besties.

And this prank, lasted on till the next stage of secondary school where streaming took place and she was separated from her best friends and placed in a class where majority were guys.

Things started to get worst when her eczema started a terrible outbreak and that a non-intentional blog-post lead to a storm of misunderstanding which resulted in the entire class ganging up against her. 40 versus 1 student. Who’s gonna win?

You know the answers.

And for that the two years, she hated school so much and that the only thing that she looked forward too was CCA, recess and lunch time where it was the only time she was able to meet up with her best friends.

Nonetheless, for every terrible teasing and jeering she got, it would resulted in an emotional breakdown and leading her running and hiding inside the toilet crying and tearing. At that moment, school was shit to her and that home was the best place to hide from all those humiliation.

Things also got even out-of-hand when she decided to study really hard so that in terms of intellectual wise, she was able to stand out from them, and turns out, they started teasing her for being the “teacher’s pet and bootlicker”. She was also given nicknames like ” bookworm, nerds, geek, silent movie, bitch…” etc. It just gets nasty each time…

And for everytime she chanced upon the guys in her class, they would start teasing about her legs because of the eczema scars that were on her, it made them look really ugly. Worst of all, she suffered from some family problems where she couldn’t afford to get braces and well, she was named “bucktooth”. Some of the mean guys even commented, ” This girl is so ugly and that I would rather than the fatest girl in class than to go out with her. I would kill myself if I’m forced to go out with her.”

This left the girl heartbroken and emotionally scarred… From the four years of intimidating school life, she no longer trusted guys anymore and started hating every single guys in school whether be it they are kind, good or bad, she just hated them. 

Also, she had even build up a defence wall emotionally so as to not get near any guys ever again to prevent getting hurt from those nasty comments. 

She no longer trust guys.

Well, by now, I guess you would know who’s this girl.. It’s was me…

And the morale of sharing this story will everyone is not about wanting to gain any sympathy or pity from anyone of you out there.

But, all I want to say that, before you become a bully, think about the consequences. A simple act that you think that it is fun and thrilling to do so, may ruin another person’s life. Be it emotionally or physically, it will leave him/her scarred for the whole life.

And he/she may not be able to step out of the taunt and face life positively like how everyone else is able to.

So, be a kind person to yourself and to others, let’s not jeer or laugh or joke at any person you know whether be it they are a normal person or someone suffering from any illness.

That way, school will be a better place for everyone…

For the very first time…

First time…what first time?

Yes. For the very first time I dress nicely and put on makeup to go out…

Call me nuts. I have no idea why I did that.

Usually, I don’t wear makeup out because I feel that there is not a need to do so and of course, my laziness…

But, this time I’ve gone nuts and my sister was so kind to help me take a few photos for me!

ImageSmiling gleefully with my braces!

Post-CNY Outing!

It’s the first day of the study week and I was supposed to be studying for the exam on friday but the group of us decided to give ourself a break first by going to Emrys’s house to “bainian” and to visit her cats followed by a long-awaited ramen meal at Marutama @ Clark Quay and then watching Ah Boys to Men 2!

The trip sounded so exciting right! Plus, everyone of us dressed our best for the day and it felt so cool! Especially entering the Marutama restaurant!

So, we all met at Woodlands MRT on a monday morning and many of them were late…and some were unable to make it which was kind of sad…

ImageA photo of us on the bus to Emrys house!

ImageA funny photo!

Image

Some of them are so scared of the cats and started dashing out of Emrys house!

And did you know that there’s 5 cats!!!

ImageHere’s the boy that frightened them! He’s such a sociable cat!

ImageHere’s my favourite one, Boyboy! She’s so scared of people that she hid behind the mattress!

ImageShe looks like a Garfield!

Image

She hides at a corner in the room!

Image

 It took a hard time for me to wait for BoyBoy to look into the camera!

Image

Her eyes are huge and look so cute!

Image

Then, we went to Marutama!

Image

Another photo!

Image

B & W!

Image

Wet tissues of Marutama! LOL!

Image

 Marutama menu!

ImageAjitsuke Tamago arrived in bowl!

Usually, they would place it in your ramen!

The ajisuke tamago is the best I have eaten so far among many of the ramen shops! I love the hint of japanese soya sauce in their egg yolk where the egg is 60% cooked! Not too runny nor fully cooked! LOVEEE IT!

ImageNext came the Gyoza! It’s steamed and I loved it!

The sauce is actually a mix of japanese soya sauce and chilli oil with a dash of garnishing!

ImageMy ramen arrived! It’s non-spicy because I couldn’t take spice! Haha!

So, the first thing I did was to take a sip of the chicken broth! Relatively nice! But the first sip felt like the soup base of chicken instant noodles, I only got hooked on to it after several sips!

The noodles were rather nice, not to thick nor thick, springy and chewy! LOVELOVE!

Overall, I think that Marutama ramen is worth a visit especially for a dining place for girls’ outing!

ImageThe eight of us took a photo by the friendly staff before we left!

The staff were very friendly and helpful especially in helping us take photos! Teehee!~

ImageAnd we went to watch Ah Boys to Men 2! The movie was awesome and I’ve been wanting to watch the movie for like sooo LONG!!!

ImageAnd this is my outfit of the day!

Did my own french braid, Self-tie back dress in green from MDScollections, MaryJane wedges in black from Code Red!

I enjoyed the outing so much!

Can’t wait for the next one!~

An Authentic Kampong Chinese New Year Experience!

Definitely, it’s authentic with the rooster calling away during sunrise and living in a really big house with our own garden.

So, I had my Chinese New Year this year spent at my grandparents house again. The reason to which why I did not spend my Chinese New Year here, right in Singapore was that I didn’t like being here, I prefer the way of life in Malaysia, relaxing and slow paced, of course, time past faster than you could expect.

I had lots of fun there playing with “explosives” such as fireworks and various types of firecrackers!ImageFireworks!ImageReally pretty firecrackers!

ImageTourists came to our kampong to put firecracker! LOL~

Not only that, I got to take a look at the new terrace house that we had just renovated and managed to experience a high tide due to heavy rainfalls over the past few days! It was fun with the water coming into our house and rising to our knees in our kitchen! FUNNN!

ImageWe had our fence redone!ImageWhat do you think of our new house?ImageHere’s the living room! With a set of PURPLE sofa!Image

Took a picture on my favourite sofa! LOVE~ImageHere’s the high tide!ImageAnd my neighbour’s dog is trap with the rising water!Image

Silkygirl & Maybelline Lipsticks Review!

Ok, so maybe reds have been a very popular colour this season for 2013, but nonetheless, I’ve been overly obsessed with nude lips!!!

I think that nude lips look so much sexier than red although I know that red is more of a turn on…

Still, I couldn’t stop my urge and got myself 2 new nude coloured lipsticks!

So, first, I’lll be reviewing the Maybelline WaterShine Diamond Lipstick #301!

  • Attractive design of the container in gradient pink and is super reflective! LOVE IT!
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Contains fine shimmers

Cons:

  • Not so pigmented and requires a few applications for the intensification of colour.

Maybelline HyperCurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara Review!

I have always loved  Maybelline Mascara for its affordability and it’s dry formula! So here I have today is the Maybelline HyperCurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in blackest black!

I know the name of this mascara is so so so so so LONG! Still from the name you would know that it is suppose to be:

  • Waterproof!
  • Gives you volume!
  • And curls!
  • Very black lashes!

Image

The mascara in it’s wrapper!

I got this from Guardian drugstore in Malaysia, my city, Kota Tinggi!

Image

Really nice and pretty gorgeous container that SHINES!

Image

Just opened the mascara! Look at the brush!

It’s curved!!!

Image

Close up of the brush!

Do you know that curved brushes are better than straight ones because they are more convenient and easier for application? It also helps in evening out of your eyelashes during application! This means PLUS POINTS FOR THE LASHES!

Image

My eye BEFORE application!

My eye AFTER application!

Bottom down shot of my eyes and lashes! 

Can you spot the difference between my eyes?

So, asian eyes have been known for having sparse eyelashes as compared to caucasian’s eyes where they are blesses with thick eyelashes…SO ENVIOUS!

Still, I’ve decided to get a volumizing mascara so that my eyelashes will not look pathetically sparse and short! And the results have shown! The left eye from the above picture is without applying Maybelline HyperCurl and the right is after application! Great difference right?!

I’m so loving the new mascara despite it causing my eyelashes to clump slightly…Anyway I love it!

What do you girls think?
